in no man's land. it's high time that whenever balboa station is mentioned, you are really a transit-first city, we connect balboa train station with visitation valley. the second point i want to make is on this so-so called mobility study. new right, the transportation system especially any of the buses that go up to hunter's point is very precarious. and this has been going on for many, many years. over 15 years. but in the last three years, it's despicable. you do not know who are the focus groups gathering to talk about some mobility program, but as far as the really plight of the people, something has to be done. and that's one of the ways where [inaudible] is fostered. the sfcta, loves to talk the talk, but cannot walk the walk. finally, i saw this thing in the bus that you be a czar for a day and now to the year 12-2040, you can spend $64 billion. we are not dealing with monopoly and those type of

introduced, as the first city in the united states, neighborhood cultural centers, as a reflection of not only dealing with art, but making sure that art is focused in the neighborhoods. we really want our community to have the opportunity to participate, to deal with, and actually to become involved with art development. recently the city has found its way to make sure that at least 2% of every new construction in city buildings is preserved for art. and this is kind of an extraordinary thing for a city of our size to do. as a result, we have a wide array of lots of cultural and artistic venues for people to take advantage of. >> i wanted to let sfgtv, we have a powerpoint. >> yes, we do. but i'm not quite ready to use it yet but i will hit that button in just a moment. thank you for reminding me. the reputation and promise of the arts commission has been tarnished recently. and i think by looking at our report and reading it, you get a clear indication of how what was to be an extraordinary part of our art community has found itself faced with a variety of challenges and criticis

individual out of 26,000 who best exemplifies what service is to our city. when i was first elected to office, i asked a lot of people, literally hundreds of people, who is the smartest person in government. with all due respect to the other smart people in this room, there was one name that came up over and over again. that was our awardee. whenever i have a question that was difficult to answer, i would ask my staff, who are we going to call? the same name always came up. it was our awardee. i'm going to tell a story that has not yet been told publicly, but i'm going to share it today. in late 2010, when the board of supervisors, when we were casting around for someone to play the role upon interim mayor, and when ed lee was still telling us he did not want to serve, i invited this man to my kitchen table, as did a number of my colleagues, to convince him. tonight we honor the career of a man who has served our city for 28 years, who has left us a legacy of which he and the entire city can be proud of. tonight, we celebrate the lifetime achievement of ed harrington.

we call ourselves a city as a transit first city there is no better example than that than what is reflected in the plans for the central subway. this project is a vital enhancement of our public transportation system. it's going to significantly improve the movement of tens of thousands of franciscans and if you were here this past weekend when people were predicting it would be jam san francisco instead of san francisco you knew that folks were educated because of the great leadership at our mta, our county transportation, all of our transit systems and were at the highest level of educating the visitors and others to use public transportation. it will work for all of us and as we build the housing units we identified in hunter's point and treasure island and welcome more people to our great city and we are growing as a result. we are going to have the greatest subway system that can connect to our bart, to our caltrans, to

the need of a city that changed substantially over the last 30, 40 years. now we're transit first. our do you wanour downtown has d within the next 20 years it will change. new districts will offer new life for the downtown. to the south, yerba buena has come into its own. the transit center on rincon hill projects will shift the center of downtown south and provide new regional connections. an essential corridor will create a new center of activity. to the yoorth union square thrives, powell street, chinatown, and the feeder district are a few blocks away. to the west emerging technology hub around the historic furniture mart, new shopping mall, strand theater will transform that end of market street in the coming years. at the center of it all lies market street. all this change since the last design. this requires new creative thinking for how market street should be designed. it will always be the heart of our city, but new exciting opportunities exist to think about our public realm in a more expansive way and opportunities to begin building a more robust transit system that will bet

think cities are where a lot of the opportunity lies, and why we are proud san francisco is the first city in the world to recognize this and to work collaboratively with all of us. >> [inaudible] >> [inaudible] >> what is that? >> this is one thing we have thought about not necessarily actually creating a new currency, but as far as our platforms, sharing resources. i do see a future in being able to create a system where you can kind of have some type of credit or there is some type of sharing and bordering among those services. as we all grow, i know that our company was born that way. we were a originally funded by money we made off of airbnb sublett our apartment -- subletting our apartment, which was managed by taskgrabbit, and we would use peer to peer, schering. it was very much the bread-and- butter, and i think we will see that nationally expand, though it may not be its own initiative. >> yes, i will just add to that that you are one of the largest -- one of the largest time banks in the country is here in san francisco, the bay area community exchange. could start using th

. >> i'm going to go back to transit issues. i think we need to double down on being a transit-first city, which means improving muni, so it's a viable transit option for everybody. i agree with increasing bike access and even experting with sunday streets, which is closing off a lot of your streets to car traffic. i think it's a great model, but i also think we have to do the simple things like fix the roads and sidewalks. there are a lot of places in district 5 where the sidewalks are in disrepair. i have had several friends who have tripped and fallen, but really who that impacts the most are the elderly and the disabled, who have a hard enough time getting around, let alone if the sidewalk is messed up. transit issues are important and i would like to see those things worked on and that is what i will do as supervisor. >> miss olague? >> as supervisor i have been working on many issues, so it's really difficult for me to prioritize any one set of issues. so we have been prioritizing transit issues and affordable housing issues. and the rest of it, but right now i believe the city i

, our city's leadership feels the same way. we are today opening the world's first network of shared electric scooters that you can activate with your smart phone and your phone, it's not just a key to the scooters, it's really a key to the city, it brings everything in the city closer to you, it opens up new neighborhoods that you may not have gone to before and it makes the places you get to every day more fun to get to. for those of us who ride, life before scoot is sort of like life before mobile phones, once you have a short-cut to anywhere in the city in your pocket, you don't really want to go back, so we give you scoot, the world's first network of shared electric scooters and the perfect mode of transportation for the city that leads the world in what's coming next. thank you.
